    Epik, Rob,

    How can you make any claims of bitmitigate being able to do anything or guarantee anything related to bitmitigate when you are simply selling and hyping a re-skinned version of BuyVm DDoS service. Don't you feel guilty trying to take credit for a service you actually have nothing to do with in an attempt raise MONEY?

    What exactly is going on? Has to be one of the following, so which is it?
    1) You also purchased BuyVM and haven't announced.
    2) You were tricked into thinking you were purchasing more than you thought with bitmitigate.
    3) You are intentionally lying in attempt to commit simple fraud?

    Hilariously, the graph image you use to market Bitmitigate DDoS service on your bitmitigate site is found on BuyVM's site from over 5 years ago (see way back archive). You were so lazy you didn't even rename it on your own site.

    If you are no longer connected to BuyVM then why do you still have their graph in your marketing materials?

    This is nonsense.

    Derek Peterson is an anti-Gab shill. He runs a competing site called OneWay.com. He is not a domain investor and apparently created an account at NP just to post here. Derek wanted Epik to drop Gab.com.

    BitMitigate has used VPN providers in the past. After Epik acquired BitMitigate, we moved to a much larger hosting setup with 7 Points of Presence on a global network of dedicated servers.

    BitMitigate technology is proprietary and now 100% owned by Epik. Anyone who works with the software can clearly see that it is a unique application and works remarkably well.

    It is also growing like a weed:

    [​IMG]
    You can test it for free at BitMitigate.com @NickLim might comment here our DM him for help getting started.

    You can also buy a Resilient domain at Epik which includes Forever registration and BitMitigate, all in one:

    - Content Delivery Network
    - 4096-bit SSL
    - DDoS Mitigation
    - Anycast DNS
    - Website Optimizer
    - Unlimited VPNs for users

    It is a rather clever and attractively priced bundle for anyone building a site that needs high availability and caters to a global audience.

    Long story short, BitMitigate might end up being the best acquisition I ever did. If you have not tried it yet, I invite you to do so.

    Why do you have the 5 year old graph for BuyVM on your website? Are you still simply reselling BuyVM's DDoS service or not?

    Either you are lying in your marketing materials or you are lying about your service offering. Either way it is fraudulent.

    For the record the graph in question, that is actually still named buyvm-ddos-graph, is still on your website today. https://archive.fo/P0O98

    The case study you are referring to is from Nick Lim's former company. Nick used to run the largest Minecraft server in the world. Nick experienced first hand the importance of DDoS Mitigation.

    The software that powers BitMitigate is 100% proprietary built by Nick from the ground up over the last 2.5 years. It is a remarkable piece of software, which folks can benchmark against CloudFlare or any other.

    As explained above, BitMitigate also does far more DDoS Mitigation. It is an all-in-one replacement of CloudFlare, Akamai and Comodo.

    It also scales massively and can even be used on parked pages, e.g. an Epik customer that has nearly 30,000 parked domains all with BitMitigate, each with unique SSL. We did that for free with our tech.

    Unlike CloudFlare, which routinely shares SSL certificates with 50 customers at a time, with BitMitigate, each customer gets their own unique SSL.

    Also, unlike CloudFlare, BitMitigate fully masks the origin IP address. There are 2.6 million known CloudFlare customers where their source IP is exposed. Test yours here.

    The proof is in the pudding. Here is an example of a benchmark:

    Site with BitMitigate: https://godlike.com/

    Site: CloudFlare: https://www.godlikeproductions.com

    The content is identical. Here is what the client said after 2 weeks of testing:
    upload_2019-4-20_15-35-0.png

    This is a site that is heavily attacked, including Layer 7 attacks. The owner of the site is preferring BitMitigate.

    Also, worth noting, CloudFlare, started out as Project HoneyPot. CloudFlare catalogs the IPs of everyone who visits sites, many of which are controversial. From a privacy standpoint, that is a concern!

    BitMitigate is not just a viable alternative. It is superior.

    Sure, there is nothing to hide. It is an illustrative case study of Nick's past work that shows what can happen if you don't use DDoS mitigation.

    In the meantime, last month, BitMitigate successfully defended against a brutal DDoS with more than 10 million unique IPs including 200,000 IPs that nobody had seen before.

    BitMitigate works like a champ and is growing stronger by the day.

    Nick seems like a good kid but did he used to work for BuyVM? That graph is from BuyVM site - still named BuyVM.

    He is a young phenom. At age 21, he has built and sold 3 companies. He makes rookie mistakes no different than any other 21 year old male. However, he is a quick study, and is increasingly receptive to trusted mentors who I am sure will help him address the blind spots in his skill set. When he is focused, he does the work of 10 engineers.

    Yes. Nick seems like a great catch. So you are saying that the graph is actually from Nick's previous work? Okay, that sounds good. Glad to hear you guys have expanded to your own network. We will check it out as an option for our own sites. Thank you for responding to my questions!

    Anytime.

    Give the product a try and let us know your feedback with your tests. I bet you will be impressed. We are looking for sophisticated, demanding customers who will help raise the bar.

    In the meantime, you can be sure that BitMitigate is our tech and that it is already battle-tested on some major sites that have withstood and prevailed against Layer 7 attacks.

    Traffic growth from word of mouth is gaining momentum for BitMitigate.com.

    upload_2019-4-22_12-6-49.png
    CloudFlare is in the Alexa 1000 so there is a lot of headroom here.

    What is impressive here is that this foundation was all laid by a bootstrapping founder who built the platform from the ground up and battle-tested it in the field with some sites that were under a lot of attacks.

    The Founder, @NickLim , has an interesting story. He began coding at age 5 and lived on his own from age 14. He has since built and sold 3 companies, including what was the largest Minecraft host at the time.

    Now, at age 21, Nick and BitMitigate lands at Epik at a time when CloudFlare looked like they had the DDoS Mitigation market all locked up for themselves.

    SiteLock was acquired last year by ABRY Partners which now also controls Donuts.

    I am excited to see what BitMitigate can do for the domain industry. We are actively pursuing partnerships with resellers and parking companies to drive rapid adoption of an exceptional solution.

    Definitely worth checking out if anyone has not done so already. It takes about 5 minutes to set up a site. No technical skills required.

    Defense against DDoS attacks is mostly about software. However, to do that you need a sufficiently large pipe to prevent a vast concurrent attack from blocking all inbound traffic so that the mitigation software cannot perform its function. The power of BitMitigate is the proprietary software which is why CloudFlare, Stackpath and others are all fully aware of Nick Lim who built a platform comparable in performance to companies with vastly higher operating expense and can never match BitMitigate on value for money. This is also why Enterprise customers are now including BitMitigate in their consideration set, and why the organic traffic to BitMitigate continues to zoom higher day after day:

    upload_2019-4-26_15-44-17.png

    The product definitely works. The folks who have tried to take it down have burned through their supply of IP addresses trying to take it down. This was before a 30X capacity increase. So, that should give you some vague clue about what we are talking about it in terms of capacity to keep sites online. Add to that the ability to supply every user with a free VPN and you have extreme resiliency against takedowns.

    I'm not commenting here about "Is Epik.com's BitMitigate for Real or not?"..

    Service as itself can include custom prepared firewall rules to mitigate the malicious and provide clean traffic to web sites, but it's %80 powered by Voxility which doesn't just provide huge bandwith to meet the attack size but also have the features written on your DDos Protection Page at https://bitmitigate.com/ddos-protection.html.

    At the point of discussing the internal technology, it's nonsense to get out of the subject and promoting the service.

    It's always nice to be a competitor, but this shouldn't be done while trying to take down the others. (As an example, i read the same scenario at https://www.namepros.com/threads/namesilo-registering-com-went-from-6-99-to-8-99.1131233/)

    Honestly, I have no idea if Bitmitigate is powered by Voxility or not. I guess it was powered by BuyVM previously but Rob told me that they are NOW running their own tech 100% and that the image of graph from BuyVM was actually from the work of his new hire Nick Lim. You will have to ask him for further details on the matter.

    BitMitigate is a brilliant platform, running on 100% proprietary code with a host that can withstand Layer 7 DDoS attacks. Supply chain does matter but in the case of BitMitigate, the secret source is proprietary which is why companies far bigger than BitMitigate are carefully watching our progress. It is also why the organic traffic to BitMitigate continues to explode higher.

    upload_2019-4-29_19-54-59.png

    The fact is that BitMitigate is far more than DDoS Mitigation. It is also a Content Delivery Network, Anycast DNS, Site Optimization, and capable of dynamic content re-writing, e.g. we can take a frame-forwarded site and turn it into a native page that renders properly without a frame. In other words, this is far more than just a fast pipe with a firewall.

    Again for the last, nor BitMitigate neither BuyVM doesn't ownself protects you from DDOS attacks until Layer 7, Voxility does it, https://www.voxility.com.

    This thread is about discussing the Anti-DDOS service, @Derek Peterson or not me are commenting about the other services of Bitmitigate, i'm still mentioning that Bitmitigate may not be a reseller of BuyVM maybe, but both companies use the same technology provided by Voxility which provides features written on https://bitmitigate.com/ddos-protection.html, not sure why don't you still want to accept it.

    Actually, nor in any country where is DDOS attacks are being considered as high level, neither in Google etc, it's difficult to find any information unless any search is specially done for Bitmitigate, so, any Alexa records are not important.

    Also, we can go on within this thread --> https://www.LowEndTalk/discussion/156572/what-is-bitmitigate, not necessary to mention about BitMitigate user's messages looks like your comments, everyone who would read the thread entirely will see the result.

    Best Regards.

    By the way, please don't trip out that Cloudflare, Sucuri and/or others are watching you, it's just tragicomic.

    There is a good explanation of how Epik is bundling the functionality of BitMitigate with domains -- through the product called Resilient domains:

    https://www.epik.com/resilient/

    The value to domainers is the ability to cost-effective bundle this functionality with any domain. It is one of those rare cases in the domain industry where there is scope for margins because the cost to provision it is very low, but the value is very high, e.g. 10X speed improvements for page load times.

    The product is actually free for NamePros members which opens up some very interesting reseller and arbitrage opportunities since the value to the end-user is high but the production cost is very low. More here:
